Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum!

Sore niggling pain down the right side and hip, can be due to the baby pressing on the spine and causing pinched sciatic nerve. You will have to adjust your body and look for a comfortable position. Also you can visit a chiropractor and your gynecologist and learn simple exercises to remove the compression. Hope this helps. Take care!
